Chi­ro­prac­tic Kids vs Allo­pathic Kids

healthy-kids-chiropracticA health care study was per­formed where two hun­dred pedi­a­tri­cians and two hun­dred chi­ro­prac­tors were ran­domly selected and sur­veyed to deter­mine what, if any, dif­fer­ences were to be found in the health sta­tus of their respec­tive chil­dren as raised under the dif­fer­ent health care models.

What did the study reveal? Sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ences as well as obser­va­tions were noted between the pedi­a­tri­cians’ chil­dren and the chi­ro­prac­tors’ chil­dren:
1) There is a “def­i­nite cor­re­la­tion between chi­ro­prac­tic care and supe­rior health.”

2) 94% of med­ical chil­dren are vac­ci­nated while only 25% of chi­ro­prac­tic chil­dren are vaccinated.

3) 69% of the chi­ro­prac­tic chil­dren have never had oti­tis media (mid­dle ear infec­tion), while only 20% of the med­ical chil­dren never had oti­tis media.

4) Chi­ro­prac­tors con­tend that chi­ro­prac­tic care improves qual­ity of life, stim­u­lates the immune sys­tem, and con­fers supe­rior health.

5) Allo­pathic health­care is pri­mar­ily dis­ease treat­ment. Chi­ro­prac­tic health­care is pri­mar­ily preventive.

6) 91% of the chi­ro­prac­tic chil­dren started chi­ro­prac­tic care by age 1.

7) “This study has shown that chil­dren raised under chi­ro­prac­tic care are less prone to infec­tious processes such as oti­tis media and ton­sil­li­tis, and that their immune sys­tems are bet­ter able to cope with aller­gens such as pollen, weeds, grasses, etc., as com­pared to chil­dren raised under allo­pathic care.”

8) There is a sig­nif­i­cant decrease in the his­tory of antibi­otic use among the chi­ro­prac­tic chil­dren “indi­cat­ing a low­ered sus­cep­ti­bil­ity to bac­te­r­ial infec­tions as a result of greater immune sys­tem response.”

9) The chi­ro­prac­tors responded that the “recov­ery period from any trauma or ill­ness by their chil­dren was more rapid than that of their children’s peers.”

10) Non-​immunized chi­ro­prac­tic chil­dren who came down with those child­hood dis­eases seem to have minor dis­eases that were not inca­pac­i­tat­ing. “The hypoth­e­sis that chi­ro­prac­tic care main­tains the immune sys­tem is sup­ported by the obser­va­tion that even though the chil­dren did have the dis­ease, their lifestyles were not affected and recov­ery peri­ods were short.”

11) Com­ments from med­ical pedi­a­tri­cians indi­cate that a num­ber of them believe that, essen­tially, all chil­dren suf­fer from oti­tis media and that all chil­dren have at least one course of pre­scribed antibi­otics. “These are fal­lac­ies prop­a­gated within allo­pathic med­i­cine, as demon­strated by this study.”

12) “This study has shown that there is valid­ity in the premise that chi­ro­prac­tic has a pos­i­tive effect on the health sta­tus of individuals.”

13) The results of the study con­firmed the ben­e­fits of the chi­ro­prac­tic model of health care on the health sta­tus of children.
